Meroogal Women’s Art Prize 2018 exhibition

Coming Soon

The Meroogal Women’s Art Prize celebrates the creativity and achievements of female artists across NSW, and pays tribute to the four generations of women from the Thorburn and Macgregor families who lived at Meroogal in Nowra for almost 100 years.

The work of up to 40 artists will be exhibited in the historic house of Meroogal and its garden and grounds, throwing new light on the stories of the people who lived there and the house’s rich collection of objects.

Take a guided tour of the house and exhibition, and vote for your favourite artwork in the People’s Choice Awards and leave your mark on the progressive outdoor installation.
